ArtFormer: Ancient Stories is a story-driven cinematic platformer with RPG elements. This Indie game project consists of four challenging story chapters, each with a unique hero, varying gameplay and original art-style.
In the first chapter, you play as a young boy, soon being to be initiated into manhood. Help your people, learn how to fight, travel through the caves, face many dangers, and fulfill your destiny. Became the leader of your tribe!
The story of the second chapter is about the Pharaoh's journey to the underworld. Help Pharaoh Ramesses II cross the treacherous river Nile. Get his mummy to the tomb and his soul to the underworld.
The story of the third chapter depicts the legendary king Odysseus, his role in the Trojan War and his journey to the island of Ithaca. Fight to escape from the burning city of Troy, and travel across the Aegean Sea. Face many mythological creatures, and find your way back home.
In the fourth chapter, we follow the story of a gladiator during the ancient Roman republic. Find the way to the fighter's school, train, choose a combat style and buy different equipment. Fight for glory in the arena, make bitter foes and loyal friends. Be always on the alert, danger is lurking everywhere!
"Essential 2D platformer with a wide variety of graphics possibilities without necessarily seeking to flirt with 3D, such as Apotheon. Goes further in the use of classical arts."
"ArtFormer is a fascinating platformer that pays homage to the history of art."
“It is a nice Prince of Persia-inspired project with a large number of historical art elements. For you who are an artist!”
"We wish best of luck to the developers. ArtFormer, like other interesting Czech games, is very different from mainsteam western production."
